For many people, sheet masks are something they apply at the end of the day to practice a little self-care and get clearer, brighter skin. But devoted maskers know that applying sheet masks in the morning is a great way to boost your skin care regimen.
There are sleeping masks so why should mornings be maskless? Some of our old favorites can work just as well in the morning as they do at night, especially energizing, brightening and moisturizing formulas. Plus, there are some priming sheet masks specifically designed for morning use. They help erase the evidence of sins from the night before (puffiness, lackluster skin, dryness) and create a smoother base for makeup.
We know that adding a beauty treatment to a rushed morning routine might seem impossible, but a sheet mask is pretty low-maintenance. Just take a few seconds to carefully unfold it and apply to washed, toned skin, then continue with your regular morning routine. In the 15-ish minutes it takes the mask to work, finalize an outfit, enjoy a flat white and/or style your hair. When time is up, your skin will be more hydrated and luminous and you’ll still be on track to get out the door in time.
